Grand Crusader Scout

design by Jon Goff


The Grand Crusader Class vessel was designed using a scavenged power plant and jump drive from some old lab ships that were attached to the local Scout Base. They had been attached at the time of the Second Survey to do Stellar Studies on the stars of the Glimmerdrift Reaches. There were 10 of them that have been found. Five went to Grand Crusader class vessels, and the other five went to the currently unamed upgrade to the Grand Crusader. The Grand Crusader is fully streamlined, and is modular, as it features a small 10 ton pod. As these pods are rare, the space is usually left as cargo.
